Pleased that food and service have improved

I live locally to the Exeter Arms and have been concerned about recent reviews about this restaurant. It's always had great potential. Came here for a Saturday night meal with my husband and was pleasantly surprised. We were served at the bar and at the table by Tyler, a young waiter, who... read more

Had heard great things and visited on Father's day. They could just manage to get us in at 3:30 although there appeared to be plenty of room. You might allow them an excuse that it was a late lunch, but, very disappointed that the staff allowed such a tasteless, tired bag of reheated left-overs to be served. I had hoped... More

I come here for a business meeting several times a year. Staff are always very friendly and food has always been of a good standard. A good variety of sandwiches for a snack lunch as well as other more substantial meals. Always look forward to coming back.

Booked to eat in their restaurant for an important event on Bank holiday monday. Booking accepted on the phone, When I arrived at the arranged time they were closed. I have complained twice by email but received no reply. Dont trust them if they book you a place, they could still be closed

Our friend lives nearby- but had never been here. She booked a table for 1pm for 4 of us. A very sweet lady took us to a very nice table in the conservatory. As it was a very warm day we asked if we could sit in the dining room as it was cooler. This was no problem and we... More

In very pleasant surroundings we enjoyed our meal. The menu was thoughtful and the meal was well presented with appropriate crockery for a particular dish. The food was hot and delightfully cooked. The staff were a happy bunch, particularly our waiter who was attentive but not may I add, intrusive. The range of drinks included real ales. I will not... More
